TORMENT: TIDES OF NUMENERA delayed until 2016

Surprising no-one, inXile's new computer RPG has been delayed until some time in 2016. Torment: Tides of Numenera is a spiritual successor to Planescape: Torment, arguably the greatest CRPG of all time, and is set in the Numenera roleplaying setting created by Monte Cook.

The delay was unsurprising given the crowded late 2015 release schedule and the fact that the game has only recently started seeing more substantive previews and trailers being released (see above, focusing on the game's "Crisis" encounter system).

Torment: Tides of Numenera will also be of interesting to epic fantasy fans, featuring as it does some quests and characters written by Kingkiller Chronicle author Patrick Rothfuss, as well as material from Chris Avellone (of Fallout 2, Fallout: New Vegas, Planescape: Torment and Mask of the Betrayer fame).
